This study aim to evaluate whether intensive lipid lowering therapy may improve the clinical outcomes in coronary artery disease patients with in-stent neoatherosclerosis, in comparison with standard therapy.
Background: Detection of coronary artery disease (CAD) is important due to its high prevalence and its medical and economic implications. Purpose: A systematic review of the diagnostic performance of stress echocardiography (Echo), SPECT, cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR), CT Perfusion (CTP) and PET versus invasive coronary angiography (ICA) or fractional flow reserve (FFR) using hierarchical summary ROC (HSROC) methods. Data Sources: MEDLINE, EMBASE and SCOPUS for literature published in English or Spanish from January 1970 to December 2015. Study Selection: For inclusion, studies had to meet the Cochrane guidelines, had to evaluate the sensitivity and specificity methods, and use ICA and/or FFR. Only those studies with STARD methodology ≥60% were included. Data Extraction: Ten investigators extracted patient and study characteristics and 4 resolved any disagreements.
Patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) were enrolled. CAD was diagnosed by coronary angiography which also resulted Syntax score. Images of left and right ears were captured by a digital camera. Frank score of each patients was calculated based on characteristics and numbers of wrinkles of the earlobes. Statistic analysis were carried out to analyze the correlation between Frank Score and Syntax Score.
TEMA-HF 1 Long-Term Follow-up study is a follow-up study of TEMA-HF 1. It assessed the long-term impact of a 6-months telemonitoring program in chronic heart failure patients.
Coronary Computed Tomographic Angiography (CCTA) is emerging as the diagnostic test of choice in chest pain patients with low to intermediate probability of coronary artery disease (CAD). Qualified CCTA readers may not be available around the clock in most centers, limiting the use of CCTA. This study aimed to determine if well-qualified CCTA technicians can provide initial accurate diagnosis to guide initial management and triage of such patients
The TUXEDO-India is a prospective, single blind, multi-center randomized clinical trial to assess the TAXUS Element™ in a consecutive population of diabetic patients with coronary artery disease undergoing coronary revascularization. Approximately 1,830 patients with single or multi lesion, multi vessel coronary artery or saphenous vein graft disease ranging in vessels ranging from 2.25 mm to 4.0 mm in diameter by visual estimate will be enrolled in a 1:1 randomization to TAXUS Element™ vs. XIENCE™ Prime in India at up to 50 clinical sites, to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of TAXUS Element™ in an unrestricted population. Procedural Endpoints: - Device success, defined as attainment of < 30% residual stenosis of the target lesion (visual assessment) using the TAXUS Element™ or XIENCE™ Prime stent. - Lesion success defined as attainment of < 30% residual stenosis (visual assessment) using any percutaneous method. - Procedure success defined as lesion success without the occurrence of in-hospital MACE. - Procedure complication rate including composite and individual angiographic occurrence of dissection ≥B, distal embolization, no reflow, slow flow, abrupt closure, or perforation.
Primary Objective: To document the tolerability of patients receiving study medication at 12-week of therapy in terms of the scoring system assessed by the investigator. Secondary Objectives: - To document drug safety at 12-week of treatment in terms of number of Adverse Drug Reaction or Serious Adverse Drug Reaction reported. - To describe the population treated as per the HOPE study indication in current clinical practice (demographics, cardiovascular risk-factors at treatment initiation, concomitant treatments patterns).
This study will evaluate the profilatic effects of inspiratory muscle training (IMT) on functional capacity, respiratory muscle strength, postoperative pulmonary complications and days of hospitalization (PPC) in patients submitted to coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG).
This was a prospective randomized, controlled trial designed to quantify the reduction in cost and length of stay of early discharge of emergency department patients evaluated for acute myocardial infarction, who are deemed to be low risk based on a modified HEART score (a score that incorporates troponin biomarker, ecg, patient characteristics, and physician clinical judgment).
Investigators try to assess the safety of 6-months or 12-months maintenance of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT, aspirin + clopidogrel) in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention using the Zotarolimus-eluting, Resolute Integrity™ stent (Medtronic Vascular Inc, Santa Rosa, CA) or the BioMatrix™ stent (Biosensors. Singapore).
